Wow… I see a lot of things going on. I’ve been M.I.A. for the past few weeks or a month trying to restructure some things with my business. And now I see this is the last FMF hosting week for Lisa-Jo.
Well, with a beginning comes an end to something. For the last month, I’ve been focusing on restructuring my website, creating new services, and package plans. A lot of work and it definitely takes a lot of focus. But I can appreciate the new phase I’m in and moving forward with a grateful attitude.
I believe new beginnings come after a reflection process. When you reach a certain milestone in life, you take the time to stop, refocus, reflect on what was good, reflect on what was not so good, and basically reorganize or restructure. New beginnings symbolize growth, moving to the next level or phase, and this can be in regards to one’s personal, spiritual or professional life.
The After Five:
New beginnings can also be a bit scary as one enters new territory with no direction other than to go forward. And with fear comes those pesky little thoughts: “How will I do?” “Will I do better than before?” “Will this relationship last longer than the last?” “Will this degree finally allow me to move up professionally?”
Along with other positive thinking strategies, here’s my take on moving forward with confidence. The same way you overcame the obstacles, uncertainties, and mistakes in the last phase, so it will be in the next phase because you are a Conqueror. Even on the days you wanted to quit, and even if you did quit, somewhere along the way you decided to get back up again. Somewhere along the way you decided to tell “rejection” it would not win and that you would push forward no matter what it took.
Your new beginning today is the light that you sought after before. Rejoice in your new beginning. Be thankful for your new beginning, and enjoy the new process as you work towards your next new beginning.
Thanks for taking the time to visit.
I wish you well in your own new beginnings of life.

Posted yesterday, but Still Available here.
I’ve been reading WisdomfromaFather’s Friday posts for a while now and thought the idea of Five minute writings was neat. So here I am joining hundreds of others in Five Minute Fridays started by Lisa Jo-Baker. The key is to write for five minutes based on Lisa-Jo’s prompt “No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.”
This weeks word is “Garden” but you will have to visit Lisa-Jo Baker here to get the full story behind her inspiration for this weeks word, a love story like no other.
So here we go: “Garden”
Well, you know, I don’t have a garden, so literally speaking I can’t share from that aspect. However, metaphorically speaking (yeah, I think that’s the right word), the word “garden” actually reminds me of our own individual lives. In many ways, we choose what we allow to grow in our life, we can choose what type of flowers we want to plant, what type of vegetables we want, basically the good things, and we can choose which ones are not good for our health, which ones that are not quite ripe or mature, as well as remove the weeds that manage to slither their way through.
**The After Five: So basically speaking, we may not always have a choice as to WHO comes into our life, but we do have a choice as to how long we allow them to stay. Will they prove to be fruitful or will they prove to be useless to our growth. And where you do have a choice, be sure to see the bigger picture and not just the temporary/short-term picture.
You have a voice and you have a right to determine who stays and who goes, but even while tending to your own garden of life, be sure to bless others so that they too may flourish.
“How will the thing you allow in your life today affect your life tomorrow?”
